principal number-one is to keep the burden down on middle income taxpayers. >> how does mitt romney defined middle income? >> middle income is $250,000 and less. so number-one, do not raise taxes on middle-income people, lower them. >> his campaign clarified saying that he meant a household income of $250,000 and not an individual salary. but isn't that high to be considered middle-class? we asked economists from the berkeley school of business. >> i do not think that anyone thinks that to on the $50,000 would be something like an average or near the middle. because in fact, very few households, only a few percent earn incomes above $250,000. it has become a convenient number to use to tell us where, perhaps, high income begins. >> not even close in the bay
6:01pm
area. u.s. census bureau says the median household income level and the nation is just a fraction at around $50,000 for 2011. in california the median is a little more than $53,000 and for the bay area is much higher than the national average at $76,000, still nowhere near the quarter of a million-dollar mark. $250,000 may sound arbitrary, governor mitt romney actually got the number from president obama. he started using $250,000 as the cutoff number between the middle class and wealthy when he was campaigning in 2008. >> with 53 days left before the election, there's really no room for mistakes and the latest cbs news poll shows that the president and mitt romney are statistically tied, 3 points apart with the president only slightly above the that is really the same as the margin of error so that is why they're considered to be tied. think about this, the election may feel far off because it is

6:03pm
that is right, 8600 homes, that is the strongest august in six years, up 14% from the same time last year, median sales price $410,000, and that is 11 percent more than this time last year. to find out how many homes are being sold in your neighborhood, log onto cbssf.com, we have a link to that report. >> the gap needs more room so they're looking to move one of their divisions from its headquarters in san fransisco to the east bay. it is looking to set up shop in pleasanton. juliet good rich is here with a growing trend of companies going from urban, to suburban. >> a lot of people here, especially those in pleasanton and nearby areas, say " thank goodness ". because they can shave off their commutes' and that is what is happening, a lot of for lease signs and high-tech companies here are grabbing them. this quiet family town,

>> it looked like a done deal but there could be a delay in appointing a new school superintendent in berkeley, the school board was planning to vote on that appointments of edmund he'd leave last week. critics now accuse him of supporting proposition 8, citing a memo that he issued while he was superintendent in san bernadino county. however a closer look at that memo reveals that he was asking for guidance on the issue of proposition 8, not necessarily stating any opinion. >> three years probation for a member of a silicon valley power family following a domestic violence incident. this is the 34 year-old mason meyer, the younger brother of the yacht was ceo. today he pled guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor false imprisonment. he was originally charged with three felonies after a 2011 altercation that left his girlfriend with a bloodied i and a swollen face. that woman spoke after the hearing. >> we just hope that by coming

6:09pm
workers and then call them into the cops. >> this way it will not get anyone arrested but what happens is the letter goes to the home of the owner of that vehicle. and sometimes that can be pretty motivating. to me it is like drawing the women in, i do not know if your wife opens the mail or your mother, i think that will have an impact. >> the organizers and the police are trying to push this message here that they're not asking people to confront the johns or even be seen by them, but the advise them to simply write down their license plate and call it into police. >> thank you for that. >> other bay area have lines, traffic in san jose came to a stop this afternoon because of a suitcase. police called in the bomb squad after someone found a suspicious suitcase by a bus bench near capitol expressway. people in the area were asked to shelter in place, police are still on scene investigating. >> in the east bay this car

interstate 405. it is hot and windy in the area, making the fire difficult to contain. there are several large homes nearby and firefighters are staked out in the neighborhood for protection. the getty museum voluntarily closed as a precaution. no word on how all this got started but it looks like they have a handle on it right now. >> coming up, the perk expires in just a few hours but there is a loophole that will let you shop on amazon after tomorrow and still avoid sales tax. >> the bay area technology from bringing life to careers, the game changer in the current petition for same-day delivery. >> i am paul deanno with your forecast, you just saw that video from hot and dry los,,,,,,

>> if you have your online shopping cart full, check out before midnight because that is when major online retailers like amazon will start slapping sales tax on california customers. len ramirez explains that there is a way around it if you know where to look. in light in us ... >> exactly right, when most people buy something on amazon they only look at a price in the shipping date but if you look deeper down in the fine print, where the order actually originates from, if it comes from amazon and you will need to pay that tax but if it comes from a third-party vendor, a preferred vendor on the amazon site, that is where you can save a little money on that tax because oftentimes those vendors are from out of state, only 40 percent of the sales in amazon are with those third-party vendors of the majority of sales are going to be taxed and that
6:15pm
is making a lot of retailers on the street and others across america, very happy. at this bookstore in san jose, they still do things the old- fashioned way. it is that kind of customer service that helps them out last the competition and survive the impact of the amazon tax exemption in california. >> we have to collect sales tax and they don't. >> advantage is about to come to an end, to pressure from lawmakers, the retail giant will begin charging a sales tax just like bricks and mortar stores, starting tomorrow. the reason is that amazon, a seattle company, does have a physical presence in california, it is where the kindle was developed in cupertino. >> i am happy that the plainfield has been leveled for local merchants and i am happy that the state will have funds to repair the roads that the ups trucks drive on. >> amazon customers are not

6:17pm
on your door and ask you to pay. >> buyer beware, california will be ready, in fact the state board of equalization has hired 35 new auditors to make sure that people are not avoiding the taxes they should be paying and making sure that people are paying the tax and letting the others off the hook. >> they're serious about this. >> it will generate a lot of money, a lot people say that the ups trucks use the roads, but amazon is not paying the tax that helps keeps those trucks moving. >> it is important for our fiscal situation here in california. >> thankyou. >> speaking of money, apple stock rose by more than 1 percent today which you expect after the new iphone 5 sold out within hours of his released, customers that free ordered the lighter, thinner, and faster from, at midnight, saw the expected delivery time of one week rise to two weeks.
